This year alone, nearly 16,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States. One in eight children will not survive, making the disease the second-highest cause of death among young Americans. The Atlantic will convene medical experts, policy leaders and advocates to address today's practical realities of pediatric cancer and identify ways these deaths can be reduced.
We’ll break down the latest in immunotherapy and how it is being used to help young patients survive and thrive. And moving beyond anecdotal evidence, we'll examine how can big data can be used to track how pediatric cancers impact aspects of health for survivors down the road.
